History:
(Uncanny Inhumans Annual#1 (fb) - BTS) - An engineer in India, Kludge was hit by the Terrigen Cloud and emerged with the powers to reshape metal and electronics to create massive weapons or systems. He went mad (though it is possible he was mad before his transformation). Kludge built himself a large mechanized suit of armor.

(Uncanny Inhumans Annual#1) - Wanting new parts for his armor, Kludge attacked the Indian Navy, but the Inhumans attacked him from aboard the R.I.V., and Grid shut Kludge down with an electromagnetic pulse. The Inhumans put Kludge into custody, and he asked for tools to keep working in his cell, but the others didn't accommodate.

(IVX#1 - BTS) - When the R.I.V. fell apart, Kludge escaped quietly.

(Uncanny Inhumans#20 (fb) - BTS) - Kludge returned to work with Banyan in Mumbai.

(Uncanny Inhumans#20) - Banyan showed in his new allies, Triton, Lineage, and Maximus the Mad, who immediately was excited about Kludge's talents as Kludge showed off a big gun he had built. Over the following days, Kludge helped Maximus build a giant attack robot (with a giant Terrigen-powered sword), which they then used to fight the Maw Queen, the Unspoken, and their giant sea dragon when they attacked. Kludge and Maximus piloted the robot, but the Unspoken fed off the Terrigen and grew to giant size, tearing the robot in half.

Comments: Created by Charles Soule, Kevin Walker, and Scott Hanna.

Some people might not realize that the name used by the Inhuman Kludge is actually a descriptive name, similar to how Forge's name hints at his ability to make things.

Kludge
noun
